Watch: Powerful New UK Trailer for Disaster Drama 'The Impossible'
Even though the first US trailer for Juan Antonio Bayona's The Impossible was quite impressive, our own Alex Billington checked out the film at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, and felt it lacking something amongst some still powerful drama. This will likely be a film audiences will still want to see for themselves, especially after seeing this UK trailer. I like the absence of U2 (from the first trailer) in favor of a quiet score, and there's some truly frightening and intesne imagery. This isn't the kind of disaster film we get from Roland Emmerich, but a character based drama starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts.
Here's the new UK trailer for Juan Antonio Bayona's The Impossible from Yahoo UK:
Maria (Watts), Henry (McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise. But on the morning of December 26th, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the center of the earth. Based on a true story, The Impossible is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. The Impossible is directed by Spanish filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona, of The Orphanage previously. The screenplay is by his writer Sergio G. Sánchez. This will premiere at TIFF, and arrive in theaters starting December 21st.
